Step Up 2: The Streets

A girl from the streets with attitude problems and troubles at home gets one shot at making things good by enrolling in a prestigious arts academy on the strength of her potential as a dancer. The school’s most popular hunk and scion of the sponsoring family takes an interest in the girl as the girl gets pulled away from her streets “family” and frictions mount as they feel she “sold out”. The girl’s need to escape from the suffocating school atmosphere resonates with other students in the school who have never really rebelled against anything and together they take on the street dancers with a team of their own.


It’s one of those movies you’ve seen over and over again, usually geared towards teens. Same themes and plots, yet I loved this movie. Maybe it’s because they stuck to the formula but all the elements were there, the typical conflicts, attractive cast, and excellent dance sequences. The acting was solid too.


If you don’t like the genre, you probably wont like the movie but I really enjoyed it.


Adam Sevani was probably the best supporting actor in this film as the token “nerd” who happens to be a super bad dancer.
